Ashley Byrne only wants one thing in life: to finish his tattoo apprenticeship and fulfill his dream of owning his own shop. In the meantime, he spends his nights partying, flirting, and having sex. After all, what else is there for him to worry about? Aside from his hair and his clothes, not much. He's hot, and rest assured no one knows it better than him. He's also used to getting what he wants-until he meets Felipe Navarro. Fee Navarro has everything he needs: a great IT job, a nice apartment, and all the high-tech toys his geeky heart could ever want. He doesn't do casual, and he knows guys like Ash are nothing but. Ash may burn hot for Fee, but Fee isn't willing to take a chance on a vain, little party boy with too many tats and an oversized ego. He wants someone to share his life with, and he won't settle for anything less. Too bad Ash has never been the type to give up easily. He has a plan, and he's not stopping until he proves he's more than just a pretty face-he's someone worthy of winning Fee's heart.

Every book has a story of its own, a path leading from the initial idea that sparked it to its emergence into the world in published form. No two books follow quite the same path, but all are shaped by a similar array of market forces and writing craft concerns as well as by a cast of characters stretching beyond the author. Behind the Book explores how eleven contemporary first-time authors, in genres ranging from post-apocalyptic fiction to young adult fantasy to travel memoir, navigated these pathways with their debut works. Based on extensive interviews with the authors, it covers the process of writing and publishing a book from beginning to end, including idea generation, developing a process, building a support network, revising the manuscript, finding the right approach to publication, building awareness, and ultimately moving on to the next project. It also includes insights from editors, agents, publishers, and others who helped to bring these projects to life. Unlike other books on writing craft, Behind the Book looks at the larger picture of how an author’s work and choices can affect the outcome of a project. The authors profiled in each story open up about their challenges, mistakes, and successes. While their paths to publication may be unique, together they offer important lessons that authors of all types can apply to their own writing journeys.

After narrowly escaping the soldiers of the Citadel six months ago, farmboy-turned-rebel Caenum is now at the head of the rebel army. He and his fellow Conduits, practitioners of an ancient, forbidden magic, have spread across the Realm, freeing city after city from the Citadel's tyrannical grip. But in the midst of their rebellion, a traitor lurks. And when their safe haven is destroyed, Caenum and his friends must flee deeper into the wilds than ever before. Because he has something the Citadel wants--a weapon that could change everything...a weapon he must protect at all costs.
